In October the children of Amazing Love School took part in a competition to design a picture for Alongside Africa to use on their 2012 Christmas Card. Children here get few or no opportunities to use paints and colours With the help of a few art lessons from Monica they had a wonderful time producing many fine examples! The proud winner was Tumukunde Bruno pictured here. Bruno and the 3 runners up were presented with a small gift of art materials.
Before breaking up for their Christmas Holiday on the 17th November the school were very busy helping the pupils of P7 prepare for their Primary Leaving Exam, the results of which determines whether they can go to secondary school and the quality of school they can go to – a bit like 11+ but for everyone. The P7 class did their final exams on 5 & 6 November. As far as we know they all did well, but we have to wait until 21 January until we get the results. The new school year starts on 28 January.
Our Alongside Africa Give A Child A Chance sponsorship programme programme has grown steadily this year and Alongside Africa are proud to announce 27 children at Amazing Love School now have sponsors from the UK. This is a fantastic achievement and we thank our generous supporters and friends for this crucial help for their hard working students.
